    Brian Orser & Javier Fernandez in the house & introduced

    Up next - Sinead & Grant - Mahler's 5th Symphony - 17.3 [there was a bit of a slip in one lift but overall very well skated with one lift not done on BOTB before]

    Amanda & Scott declared safe for a return next week.

    Thanks for the updates. I usually go to the show but I'm out of town and unable to watch. So excited to hear about Amanda's triple twist. Hope video pops up online quickly!! Also very glad to hear she's safe for next week - because I have tickets again

    Tracy Wilson in the house & introduced.

    Violetta & Jason - Elite Syncopations ("Maple Leaf Rag") - 18.0 [Violetta got credit for having worked on her footwork!]

    Sinead & Grant continue "on the bubble" with the lowest judges score...

    On to the skate-off.

    What happens if both teams in the skate off also happen to have the lowest scores of the night?

    Last week the way they explained it was that one of the bottom two couples in the skate off would go home, plus the lowest scoring couple of the other teams who were not in the bottom two.

    First in the skate-off - Jessica & Brian - Moonlight Sonata - 17.2 (smoothest skate so far for them)

    Apparently Jessica had a bad fall in the dress rehearsal and they decided to leave out a throw in the live show.

    We visited with Amanda backstage after the show last week and that's the way she explained it to us. My apologies if it's not correct.

    Final couple - Marie-France & Mathieu - Love Story (there was a slight imperfection on the first lift that they managed to cover up) - Ron says that they need to score higher than Jessica & Brian to win the skate-off and higher than Sinead & Grant to skate next week. Scores after the commercial break....

    M-F & M - 17.8 [David gave them a 6.0 despite the imperfection; Jamie chastised him - said she wanted to but gave them 5.9]

    Eliminated tonight - Jessica & Brian; Sinead & Grant.
    Grant will be throwing his hockey skates in the garbage

    The bottom two scores leaving makes a lot more sense! I'm happy with the last three left standing. They are the teams I felt were best after attending almost every week. Can't wait for next week's show. I get to go live again. So exciting!

    I enjoyed this Olympic tribute theme and liked the little bits of the originals that the teams include in their routines.
    Overall, I think I have enjoyed the themes more this year and been more impressed by the skates - I think this is the best season so far of this show.
    Hopefully there will be many more!

    I really liked that Violetta and Jason added Jamie and David's over the head lift to their skate.

    SOOOOO happy that Amanda & Scott get to skate again next week!!!!

    Thank you for posting the links! I'm off to watch them now!

    I like all the three remaining teams. I'll try to secure the tickets for the finale. Fingers crossed.

    While I thought Sinead and Grant had the potential to win and that Grant was the best male skater, they just were not consistent and thus not in the final three which is only fair. Scott is missing some of the personality, footwork and posture of the other two and aside from tonight has been judged lower because of it. So it looks like one of the female vets will likely win the title unless A and S pull another rabbit out of the hat, which, going by their consistency, is well within their reach.

    Going by the judges' tendencies, if all skates are equal, I look to J and V to take the title.
